Our good friend Praveen is back at with his smooth Braille alias after a short hiatus going full Sepalcure. The EP is a solid listen all the way through, taking apart his organic sound structures and delivering selections for the dancefloor and even some for those lonely nights.
On February 10, Praveen Sharma aka Braille (one half of Sepalcure) will arrive on Friends of Friends with the Everyone’s Crazy EP. Utilizing an organic sound palette and a vast repertoire of on the cusp production techniques, Braille’s first release on FoF positions the Brooklyn-resident at the fore of sultry, beat-based music that doesn’t shy away from letting the listener into the interior world of Sharma himself. Everyone’s Crazy will function as the precedent to Braille’s forthcoming full-length debut, Mute Swan, coming Spring 2015!
A nostalgic collection of New York playgrounds that have disappeared. From Jacob Riis and all the way to Central Park, here’s is just a small glimpse back into how carefree the 1960’s were for a child’s playplace.
We’re celebrating our 10th year of “exposing the diversity in electronically made music” at Moodgadget Records with Dynamo, our 100th release. Offering a 22 track compilation of emerging new talents among our current roster which includes exclusive tracks from Dusty Brown, Kyson, Howlings, AceMo, and many more.
Made it real cheap over at iTunes if you want to support, $6.99 for 22 songs.
A nice vintage air to this mix from Jack J for WUT Magazine. Makes me think, we need to start a mix series on ISO50 right? I’ll get on that next month with the first one, how does that sound? Enjoy this until then.
Posting 2 growers from the synth world, I love intro of the Floating Points track because the white noise hiss hits like ocean waves in your ears while the song build beautifully with Sam Shepherd sprinkles the cut with his keys.
Furthering this dense journey this focused onslaught of mature synth work by Lovelock carries on into the patience of prepping yourself for relaxation and analog craftsmanship.
